While searching my waiver wire a noticed a guy with 25k's, playing for the Mariners, a low era (sub 3.00), young, and has given up a earned run in two games, and his name is Gil Meche. If anybody has insight or has seen him pitch, please let me know. Is he in the starting rotation?
He had surgery two years ago and this is his first season back in the majors. Those two games were against the slumping A's and the woefull indians.
He's got the yankee's coming up next week where he faces off against the Rocket. I would see how he pitches against the yanks, if he shuts them down pick him up. He just had one bad inning against the Rangers and since then, he's been pretty solid.

Meche has pitched 4 games, gave up 6 in 1st one, 3 in 2nd one. He was a 1st round pick awhile back, a nice prospect who blew his shoulder out. I liked him before surgery. He has to prove to me hes still the same guy. His last 2 starts were gems.

My fantasy baseball strength is putting together pitching staffs. I picked Meche about 10 days ago and started him against the Indians. He was a big-time prospect for the Ms until he had shoulder trouble. They still like him alot. Get him and spot start him against teams that aren't the Yankees, Red Sox and Rangers. Those are killer offenses.
Meche and another kid, "The Little Unit" Ryan Anderson, were to be the next wave of great pitchers for the Ms before injuries. It's great to see Meche bounce back. Anderson is still working his way back.
